Research & Impact
Lingnan University has made great stride in engaging academics in Knowledge Transfer (KT) to achieve impact from research and professional knowledge. Success is seen not only in the number of projects completed but also in new platforms established and new opportunities identified.
Knowledge Transfer Project Fund
To project the message that KT is a university-wide endeavor, Lingnan has launched a new internal funding scheme, the Knowledge Transfer Project Fund (KPF), which is open to academic staff from all faculties, departments and research centres. In 2014/15, a total of 12 projects were funded.
Consultancy and Contract Research Projects
On the external front in 2014/15, a significant rise from 38 to 51 was recorded in the number of consultancy, contract and collaborative research projects as well as social and community projects undertaken by academic staff. In terms of income, there was an increase from HK$15 million to HK$18 million. The University is proud to have sponsors and partners from Hong Kong to as far as the Netherlands, and in extending our knowledge to benefit people from the local community to as far as Africa.
KT projects initiated by the faculty have made wide and positive social impact on revitalising heritage, raising professional standards, facilitating business development, promoting arts and culture, and building a caring society.
